Did you attend college? If you did, we'd love to hear your story.

Whether you had a great college experience, or you don't feel like you benefited from your education, your story and the lessons you learned along the way can help others who are considering pursuing a college degree.

Here's what you should include in your 500 to 600 word write-up:

  • Explain why you decided to go to college and why you chose the program/major that you did. If you changed majors while in school, why?
  • Go over where you went to school, what kind of degree you got (certificate, associates, bachelor, master, etc), and what you majored in.
  • Do you now have a job related to your field of study? Explain what you do, and how you do or don’t use your college education for it.
  • Do you think your college education was worth the expense?
  • Describe your college experience in 1, 2, or 3 words.
  • Most importantly, what do you know now that you wish you’d known before going to school? What advice would you give to people currently looking at attending college? Go over a few things that you would change or do differently if you were to go back and do it again. What we’re looking for here is the good, the bad, the mistakes made, and the surprises you encountered as you worked towards your degree.

You can submit your story below. If we determine your story is a good addition to our database of college stories one of our editors will be in contact, and we’ll send you $50.00 as a thank you.
